What did John Muir mean when he said: “The mountains are calling”? He knew they were a place where nature reigns supreme, and you can still find something wild. Mountain sports can include anything from hiking to high lines. In a nutshell, anything you can do on land (except biking) is better in the mountains and fair game for the mountain category.
